Gina Bang has an insatiable curiosity about the world, other people and cultures, and particularly their cuisines. She has made foodie pilgrimages to many countries throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
She has been with Avanti Destinations for 15 years. Selling through travel agents, Avanti sells an enormous number and range of extraordinary experiences, activities, hotels, tours and transfers for independent travelers going to Asia, Europe, Central and South America. All these pieces are then stitched together to create a completely custom-crafted vacation that suits the passions, budget and timetable of each traveler.
Gina today serves as the Senior Manager of Inside Sales & Marketing. She is also responsible for maintaining and developing relationships with travel agent consortia, as well as tourist boards and other partners on joint marketing efforts. She began her career at Avanti as a customer service representative, then manager of inside sales while at the same time functioning as the product manager for Central and Northern Europe.
The most satisfying part of her work – besides traveling and tasting new and different foods? Building long-term relationships and friendships with all the different people she works with, both here in the U.S. and abroad.
